Asynchronous access to Computer Vision and Machine Learning (CVML) Web lecture repository

Εκ μέρους του καθηγ. κ. Ι. Πήτα σας ενημερώνουμε για το παρακάτω:

Dear Computer Vision/Machine Learning/Autonomous Systems students,  engineers, scientists and enthusiasts,

due to numerous requests worldwide, asynchronous access is now offered to Computer Vision and Machine Learning (CVML) Web lecture material:

  1. a) lecture pdf/ppt, b) lecture video, c) lecture understanding questionnaire d) lecture satisfaction questionnaire.

This allows individual study at own pace.

The following lectures are already in the repository:

  • Introduction to Autonomous Systems
  • Introduction to Computer vision
  • Image acquisition, camera geometry   
  • Stereo and Multiview imaging 

Two more lectures are added each week, the next to come being:

  • Structure from Motion 
  • 2D convolution and correlation algorithms

Registration  can be done using the link:

No new registration is needed for old registrants, just an email to Ioanna Koroni <>  or Orestis Sarakatsanos

All other provisions for CVML Web lectures (certificate of participation etc) apply. 

These  lectures are part of a 14 lecture CVML web course ‘Computer vision and machine learning for autonomous systems’ (April-June 2020):

Introduction to autonomous systems                                                              (delivered 25th April 2020)

Lecturer: Prof. Ioannis Pitas (IEEE fellow, IEEE Distinguished Lecturer, EURASIP fellow) received the Diploma and PhD degree in Electrical Engineering, both from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. Since 1994, he has been a Professor at the Department of Informatics of the same University. He served as a Visiting Professor at several Universities.

His current interests are in the areas of image/video processing, machine learning, computer vision, intelligent digital media, human centered interfaces, affective computing, 3D imaging and biomedical imaging. He has published over 1138 papers, contributed in 50 books in his areas of interest and edited or (co-)authored another 11 books. He has also been member of the program committee of many scientific conferences and workshops. In the past he served as Associate Editor or co-Editor of 9 international journals and General or Technical Chair of 4 international conferences. He participated in 70 R&D projects, primarily funded by the European Union and is/was principal investigator/researcher in 42 such projects. He has 30000+ citations to his work and h-index 81+ (Google Scholar).

Prof. Pitas lead the big European H2020 R&D project MULTIDRONE: and is principal investigator (AUTH)  in H2020 projects Aerial Core and AI4Media. He is chair of the Autonomous Systems initiative

Prof. I. Pitas:


Lectures will consist primarily of live lecture streaming and PPT slides. Attendees (registrants) need no special computer equipment for attending the lecture. They will receive the lecture PDF before each lecture and will have the ability to ask questions real-time. Audience should have basic University-level undergraduate knowledge of any science or engineering department (calculus, probabilities, programming, that are typical e.g., in any ECE, CS, EE undergraduate program).  More advanced  knowledge (signals and systems, optimization theory, machine learning) is very helpful but nor required.

Sincerely yours

Prof. Ioannis Pitas

Director of AIIA Lab, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece
